Course Overview

Students will work on improving the skills involved with speaking, listening, reading and writing, so that they can improve their comprehension and communicate more freely. They will work on their linguistic knowledge, increasing their vocabulary and deepening their understanding of the grammar and structure of the language. Courses at CES are communicative and task-based, using the most up to date technology and authentic materials.


Course description

We embrace the communicative approach to learning languages. Focus will be on primarily communication skills listening and speaking, and then reading and writing. Lessons will also explicitly teach grammar, use of language and vocabulary. We will encourage you to become a more independent learner in lessons and we offer self access sessions at lunch times and access to CES Online.
